    Migrating acne - does anyone else have this problem?

    My acne is mostly limited to my chin, but I've noticed that when I get a routine going that really seems to help that area that my breakouts "move" to other parts of my face. For example, right now I have a new regimine that has pretty much cleared up three or four stubborn cysts that were on my chin, but now I have zits under my nose and on my neck, two places that I never break out! Does this happen to anyone else? Is it possible that the bacteria is simply moving around looking for a "path of least resistance?" The worst part is that when this happens, it's usually in a more fragile place where I'd rather not use anything too drying. Any insights would be appreciated.

    I seem to have the same problem. My forehead had broken out very badly. It is now starting to clear, but my cheeks, which are normally clear, are now getting bad. The acne seems to feel like it has to go somewhere, it can't just peacefully go away!
